Usually, the fastest and most convenient way of moving around the city is to take the subway first and transfer to the bus or the taxi to get to the destination. The nearest subway station to BISU is the Communication University of China Station on Batong Line (the station is about 800 meters west of the South Gate) and Dalianpo Station on Line 6 (the station is about 800 meters north of the North Gate).

There are bus stops outside both the south gate and the north gate of BISU.

It’s recommended that every student get a Transport Card to travel around the city for its convenience and discount. The Transport Card is almost available at every subway station’s ticket office costing RMB 20 Yuan as administrative charge. No restriction in every top-up.

For more information about the subway see Appendix 1 the 2014 Beijing Subway Map.

Safety Tips

Strengthen Awareness of Self-protection

  1. ISO kindly advises you to avoid getting drunk and/or even getting addicted to alcohol.

  2. If you don’t feel well, seek medical assistance at public hospitals immediately.

  3. Always bring along the contact information of the contact person in case of any emergency. This person can be your guardian in China, your teacher, your friend, or your relative in Beijing.

  4. Please stay in contact with ISO, your teachers or classmates when you are traveling around.

  5. While travelling, avoid going out alone, especially at night.



  1. Go to reliable restaurants, hotels and shops for what you are after, and ask for formal receipt of every transaction. When you take a taxi, do remember to ask for a receipt as well, and make sure you don’t leave your belongings behind when you get off.

  2. Be alert and careful about your belongings in crowded places such as train stations, bus stops or subway stations, and tourist spots. Beware of thieves who might steal your belongings from your pants’ back pockets or backpacks. It is a good idea that you have your bag in the front.

  3. Keep an eye on your belongings such as your bag, coat, cell phone, and wallet when you are in the classroom, the dining hall, or the stadium, etc. When you leave even for a short time, you had better take the valuable belongings with you or ask your friend to take care of them for you.

  4. When you withdraw money from the ATM, do not input your password if you see someone suspicious around. If the machine breaks down while you are using it, do not leave the machine, but call the Bank immediately.
